2019 WAHO AUSTRALIA CONFERENCE
The 2019 WAHO Australia Conference held in February in Terrigal, New South Wales, was a very successful event and much enjoyed by all participants.
Heartfelt thanks are extended to our hosts at the Arabian Horse Society of Australia, who definitely went the extra mile to ensure everyone had a wonderful time from the moment they arrived until their day of departure. Apart from the business side of the Conference, comprising the WAHO World Registrars Meeting and the WAHO General Assembly with excellent Guest Speakers, there was a wealth of other activities to enjoy, from social events, horse parades and stud farm visits to a variety of tourism opportunities.

East Coast Championships & Australian Arabian Ambassadors Parade, 2nd February 2019
As part of the Pre-Conference activities and offered tours, an extra highlight was the Australian Arabian Ambassadors Parade held during the East Coast Championships Show, which showcased a wide variety of horses with high quality ridden classes, halter classes and dressage. This specially arranged presentation featured previous WAHO Trophy winners and major champions from Australia and was a wonderful way to welcome the early arrivals from the WAHO community. A dynamic range of horses were proudly presented, covering not only Arabians but also the many different derivative breeds that they have in Australia, as well as the many different disciplines – from halter to ridden to racing to trail to western to working stock horse and so on. It really was a great celebration of Australian horses, and it ended with the presentation of the 2019 WAHO Trophy to Mulawa Kara Mia MI (Fame Maker R x On Angels Wings), bred and owned by Mulawa Arabians.
